Solutions

On the Solutions page, Global Admins and Application Admins can view solutions according to the libraries the solutions belong to. On this page, they can also manage solutions.

Solutions are placed within libraries. Before you create a solution, ensure a library for that solution type exists.

Notes: Solution connection names are case sensitive. Apps to which a solution is imported must have a connection with the same name as the connection in the original app; if they do not, the connection name will not be recognized, and you will receive an error when you deploy the solution.

You cannot export a custom workflow solution for which the Studio script is still being reviewed.

In a user app, the following library names and associated types are created by default:

Library Name Library Type

Excel Workbooks Library

Excel Solution

Forms Library

Form Solution

Queries Library

Query

Reference Data Lists Library

Reference Data

Transactions Library

Transaction

Capabilities associated with library types

As a Global Admin or App Admin, you can create any number of libraries. The capabilities you have for any specific solution depend on the type of library to which the solution belongs.

The table below includes the capabilities or set of actions you can take for solutions belonging to four different library types: Excel Solution, Form Solution, Query/Transaction, and Reference Data.
